Web Hosting & Maintenance
Website hosting and Maintenance are two important things to consider before deploying your website. We have a number of options available; both in house and from third parties.
Hosting & Maintenance
The Bushy Creative offers hosting packages for our clients from small-medium level wordpress/html projects through to large scale ecommerce projects. For security of our other clients on our servers, hosting on our servers MUST include maintenance.
Standard Maintenance package includes:
- MYSQL Backups
- File Backups
- Security updates
- Minor Plugin & WP Updates
- Website restoration
Basic Hosting & Maintenance ($49 per month)
Basic Hosting is the most affordable form of hosting. It is suitable for standard wordpress websites with normal level of traffic and processes. This is on a VPS server and shared with a small number of other Basic Hosting clients.
Optimised Hosting ($79 per month)
This plan includes the all of the features of the Basic Maintenance package but on a far more powerful hosting platform, designed SPECIFICALLY for wordpress. Our optimised hosting plan is perfect as your website grows. It features a VPS (Virtual Private Server) for your website. This plan suits your wordpress site as it grows and can handle high volumes of traffic. Backup frequency changes to weekly for this plan.
We create custom maintenance plans depending on your needs. From uptime monitoring, daily backups through to scheduled website changes and website blog/content updates, we can create a custom plan for your website.
The Bushy Creative can help organise and deploy websites on a number of servers. We do not allow websites without a maintenance package on our servers for security purposes. In our decades of experience we can recommend the following hosts.
WP-ENGINE – High traffic/Ecommerce WordPress sites
For larger wordpress sites, those with high traffic or complex features like e-commerce sites would benefit from WP-Engine’s setup. Built in CDN, SSL and sitting on a VPS. We highly recommend Wp-Engine and have worked with their tech team on a number of projects.
SITEGROUND – Low traffic/Simple WordPress/Custom sites
For smaller wordpress sites or custom HTML projects we recommend a shared server from Siteground. Free SSL is included and pretty decent performance from a Shared server. We work a lot with Siteground servers and know our way around their little quirks.
Our Maintenance packages are designed for our clients with websites not hosted on our servers. If your website is hosted with us. You will require the hosting + maintenance combo plans.
This is an extremely basic plan. This is monthly MYSQL database backups & initial file backup. We also will setup and install security plugins to help prevent hacking attempts and keep the site secure.
